Looks like you get quite a bit for the money asked but the final defining worth is how it really sounds.

Yeah that one is loaded with features...however not many people here on Head-Fi have had experience with this amp...in the past people have asked about this amp, only to get recommendations from well-respected amp manufacturers...

I personally wouldn't get an amp in an altoids tin.. so many things can go wrong.

Oops, accidental dent = short circuit.

I don't see any cpu. Where's the cpu ?

You are bidding on a silver case with a polished silver aluminum volume knob (The white case and silver cases have the exact same dimensions).

what if he was just selling the silver case?!?!?! he could get off on a technicality!
post #7 of 40
Well.. he has fantastic feedback for previous Moys he's sold, so I can only assume he won't rip you off on a technicality.

My first thought: I'd just spend the money on a used airhead/supermini/mint/pimeta etc. And flashlight mode = bright leds. Man this guy is full of it.

You cannot get a higher-quality and more feature-packed headphone amplifier than the XMoy2.
Riiiiiight. Lemme repeat that again. Riiiiight.

My question is: Can this thing run windows?

Its ebay . . . don't rely heavily on feedback.

Too many needless bells / whistles... IE things that can go wrong. IMHO an amp should do one thing... amplify signal.

For that price youre almost into used Pimeta territory.

It sort of reminds me of a Pinto I saw one time with a 400 HP engine, sure you can do it, but the question that makes people slam their head against immovable objects is WHY?

You guys should support him by purchasing some of his products. Think of it as a potential investment. Maybe he's the next generation of portable amp manufactures. If I may be so bold, he could become the next R. Samuels.

You being sarcastic right?
post #13 of 40
why take a dump on the guy?

1. bells and whistles? imo quite a bit of the 'extra' feature are useful. those new to headphones may not find L-R channel seperation to their liking - hence crossfeed. the 'low batt indicator' is probably one of the most useful things i've seen around for a portable amp. and any amp could use some higher-end electrolytics and metal film resistors.

2. a used pimeta? how many fit in a tin?

3. no i do not think he could get off on a technicality, especially not with that title for his listing.

sure, a jap saloon may not be the 'best' car around, but still, it gets the job done. and done very well considering it's price point.

Nobody has experience with the amp, but everyone is so quick to jump on him. He made is own boards and added features instead of just making a vanilla CMoy and everyone sh1ts on him.

A CMoy does not short circuit when it dents. Maybe if you run over it with your car.
post #15 of 40
Well, if you're claiming it's the greatest amp out there period, then yeah, we can't take the guy seriously. And does anyone know where this so-called microprocessor is located on the amp? Or what it even supposedly does?

If he just made a cmoy and said it has crossfeed, rechargeable battery, etc it'd be all good. But he's just over the top. Just trying to milk unsuspecting newbs outta their money.

A MINT does. And I've seen those go for less than the 80 bucks he's charging. (71 + 9 shipping)

And I'm pretty sure many people don't care about the tin. Hell, I bought an old supermini for 60-70 over a year ago, they go for cheaper now.
